August Card Sketch #4: hexagon card

Here is the last official sketch for the month of August.

I love thinking outside the box so I thought I'd challenge the card Sistas with shaped cards. So here's a hexagon shape for you!

Love Card

I just love the gorgeous plaid paper Alli used as her background paper! Gorgeous layered details and she even has am acrylic circle shape encircling her flower and greeting! So pretty indeed!

Here's a 12x12 page with simple lines.

I just love this page by Savitri! I love her take on the large frame on the sketch; she used a simple line of stitching instead. Beautiful page indeed!

August Sketch #10: 8.5 x 11

A photo with a tilt always adds a little bit more interest so here's a sketch with a little tilt!

Lucky and Blessed
by Kristii

I love all the horizontal elements on Kristii's page. It's filled with some bright and wonderful girlie colours to match her subjecy. Great page Kristii!

I am loving all the horizontal lines on peoples pages so here's a page with lots of photos and lots of horizontal lines.

4th of July
by Jana

I love that Jana has incorperated the colour palette of the 4th of July into her beautiful page. I love that she's even pulled in the soft and subtle red and white lined paper to mimic the US flag. Just gorgeous Jana!

August Sketch #8: 12x12

For this sketch, I love to see single stitched lines of patterned paper so I thought I'd put one in a sketch.
So Lovely to Me
by Wendy

I love that Wendy made this sketch her own by replacing the journaling block with another photo! I love her scalloped cardstock base with the pop of pink along the edges! Fabulous page Wendy!

August Card Sketch #4: star card

Here's another shaped card sketch that I gave to the Card Sista, Jess to create with.

Reaching For the Stars Card
by Jess

I just love that Jess found a perfect sentiment to put on her card: "Reaching for the Stars, we find our greatest self." If you look closely, she has added some pretty pearls and some delicate patterned papers. Great star card Jess!!

August Sketch #7: 8.5 x 11

I love journaling on strips of paper so I thought this might be a fun sketch!

by Virginie

I love that Virginie has rotated this sketch to suit the needs of her photo. The pop of her orange title makes it stand out against her photo and back ground! Fabulous page Virginie!

August Card Sketch #3: circle card

This month I changed the Card Sistas to create some shaped cards. Here the first shaped card, a circle.

Believe Card
by Jen

I love the colour scheme of Jen's card! Super cute elements for one single line of paper make a project look unified and beautiful! Great job Jen!

Remember... if you create any project using the sketches from August, both page or card sketches, send me a photo and I'll put your creation in the August gallery and you'll have a chance to win a copy of the So Sketchy Subscriber and a small prize!

Can't wait to see your creations!

August Sketch #6: 12x12

I love adding circles and scallops to my sketches. So here's one with both! Enjoy!

True Beauty
by Christine

I just wanted to share with you the message that Christine sent me with her page....

I was really inspired by a talk that I had with my daughter about inner beauty and self-worth the morning that I created the layout. Just a note: this page is inspired by a song by Mandisa called "True Beauty". The journaling on the page are some of the lyrics of the song:

Doesn't come in a bottle, doesn't come in a box
You can't spray it on, you can't wash it off
You can't nip and tuck, you can't sew it up
So don't waste your time
It's the love in your heart, the peace in your soul
The hope in your smile lets the whole world know
This little light - you gotta let it shine


What's inside of you
What's inside of me
The hands that made the moon and stars
The mountains and the seas
He made you wonderful, beautiful, marvelously
Let the whole world see your
True beauty

Thanks Christine for sharing a little of you and your family with us!

August Sketch #5: 12 x 12

I love seeing journaling done in something other than a journal spot or a bunch of strips so he's a sketch with some free style journaling inspiration.

by Kristii

I just love all the added eye candy Kristii has on this layout. Did you spy the butterfly with the ribbon body? How creative is that!!!

by Savitri

Who can resist those sweet little faces?? I love those cute little tickets too... some embellies after my own heart! Great page Savitri!

Hot Tubbin'
by Jana
